As you put them into practice, you will find yourself ending one academic year with immense satisfaction and anticipating the new one with great enthusiasm.
Love this book! I honestly believe that every college should invest in this book for their college freshman, it will truly make their experience 1,0000 times better. It is so genuinely REAL about emphasizing the things that matter in life and what doesn’t. This book is such a great way for students to feel comfortable and identify extremely normal emotions while away from home for the first time. These lessons really hit home on the realities of college, or at least a college students perceived perception of their experience with college. It might be a lifesaver to someone who is finding themselves drowning in the chaos life and college. The lessons and quotes that come from this book are some of the best life lessons and quotes one could hope for. This book is easy to read and really just understands the struggle so well! This book is amazing!
SO many of the lessons rang true– and the Buddhist element never reads preachy. One of my favorites aspects of this book is that the titles of the chapters aren’t always explicitly referenced in the lessons. This has the effect of letting the reader reach their own conclusions.
This is a great book for anyone heading to college. It would make a great high school graduation gift for a college bound student. There are is a lesson for each of 108 days. Each one is a paragraph or so. Many of the lessons are things we already know or have dealt with. The lessons help set your mind into how you will handle situations and help with attitude.
